  Cowboys | Caleb Hanie praised by coaches    Fri Jul 4, 01:38 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Caleb Hanie got praise from head coach Jason Garrett. "He knows how to play," coach Jason Garrett said. "That's one of the things we were attracted to when we signed him in the spring. Get a guy in here who can handle the huddle and handle situations at the line of scrimmage. He's seen defenses in this league. He's started games. He's been in playoff games."

Footballguys view: We're unlikely to see Kyle Orton back with the Cowboys, so they need to find a backup to Tony Romo. Hanie can hold a clipboard, but it's not a good thing for him to be starting at any time. He'll compete with Browns castoff Brandon Weeden for the QB2 job in Dallas.

The Dallas Cowboys had free-agent QBs David Carr (Giants), Caleb Hanie (Browns), John Skelton (Titans) and Tyler Thigpen (Bills) in for workouts Tuesday, Dec. 24. Hanie, Skelton and Thigpen were sent home, and a source said Carr will not be signed.

  Browns | Make roster moves     Tue Dec 10, 04:40 PM

The Cleveland Browns signed RB Edwin Baker (Texans) off the Houston Texans practice squad. In a corresponding move, the team waived QB Caleb Hanie Tuesday, Dec. 10.

Footballguys view: Baker has bounced around this year, spending time with the Chargers, Broncos and Texans. With Jason Campbell healthy the team didn't need to carry Hanie anymore.

  Browns | Caleb Hanie to be backup QB Week 14    Sun Dec 8, 12:00 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Caleb Hanie will be the primary backup to QB Jason Campbell in the team's Week 14 game.

  Browns | Jason Campbell to start    Fri Dec 6, 01:22 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Jason Campbell (concussion) will start in Week 14 against the New England Patriots after being cleared from his concussion suffered in Week 12. Campbell had two good days of practice, according to head coach Rob Chudzinski. Campbell will be listed as probable on the official injury report. The backup quarterback duties will fall to either QBs Caleb Hanie or Alex Tanney.

Footballguys view: Josh Gordon owners, and even Jordan Cameron owners (despite his chilly hookup with Campbell so far) should be happy about this development.

  Browns | Not ready to name starting QB    Wed Dec 4, 12:03 PM

Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski said he is not ready to name a starting quarterback for the team's Week 14 game. QBs Jason Campbell (concussion) and QB Brandon Weeden (concussion) have been cleared for activity but will not practice Wednesday, Dec. 4. QBs Caleb Hanie and Alex Tanney will split reps during practice. No quarterback has been ruled out to start the game.

Footballguys view: The team has to wait and see if Campbell or Weeden can practice. It's not a good sign if Hanie or Tanney have to start. Tanney is a great trick shot quarterback, but he lacks experience in the NFL. Hanie has plenty of experience, but he's not a quality option as a starter.

  Browns | Unlikely to use Alex Tanney     Tue Dec 3, 02:10 PM

The Cleveland Browns are unlikely to start QB Alex Tanney against the New England Patriots in Week 14 if QBs Brandon Weeden (concussion) and Jason Campbell (concussion) can't play. QB Caleb Hanie was just signed to provide more depth at the position.

Footballguys view: Tanney is a great trick shot quarterback (search YouTube) but he has zero experience in the NFL. Hanie at least has started during his pro career.

  Browns | Caleb Hanie signs    Tue Dec 3, 08:47 AM

The Cleveland Browns signed free-agent QB Caleb Hanie (Ravens) to an undisclosed deal.

Footballguys view: Hanie has signed because of the concussion problems of both Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell. In case those two can't play in Week 14 we'll see Hanie compete with Alex Tanney for the starting job. The Patriots defense may be an outstanding play in Week 14 if you're streaming defenses this year.

  Browns | Caleb Hanie to work out    Mon Nov 25, 02:49 PM

The Cleveland Browns will work out free agent QB Caleb Hanie (Ravens).

Footballguys view: The Browns could be looking for quarterback help with Jason Campbell (concussion) banged up. We may see Brandon Weeden as the starter for the team in Week 13.

  Ravens | Caleb Hanie might get long look    Wed Aug 28, 12:45 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Caleb Hanie is expected to get a long look in the preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 29, against the St. Louis Rams. He appears to be the frontrunner for the third-string job behind QBs Joe Flacco and Tyrod Taylor.

Footballguys view: Hanie has the veteran experience that Taylor lacks. He's not going to be the primary backup behind Flacco but the Ravens could keep him around for veteran insurance.

  Ravens | Dayne Crist gets chance for audition    Wed Aug 28, 12:43 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Dayne Crist was brought back as a camp arm only because QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) was being evaluated for concussion this past week after getting hurt in the last preseason game against the Carolina Panthers. It is a chance for Crist to show what he can do to other NFL teams, as the QB position in Baltimore appears to be set with QBs Joe Flacco, Tyrod Taylor and Caleb Hanie at the top three spots.

Footballguys view: Crist was a disappointment during his college career. He entered college as one of the most highly touted QBs in the country. His time at Notre Dame was short lived and he ended up transferring to Kansas. Crist never seemed to play up to his potential and is looking for a practice squad spot somewhere now.

  Ravens | Tyrod Taylor favorite for No. 2 QB job    Mon Jul 1, 06:36 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Tyrod Taylor will enter training camp as the favorite for the No. 2 quarterback job but will have to compete with QB Caleb Hanie for the job. Hanie will have to stand out during camp and preseason games to win the backup job. The team could go with two quarterbacks on the final roster again this season.

Footballguys view: Taylor has a run dimension to his game that Hanie does not possess. He seems to have developed well in his time as Joe Flacco's understudy, but Flacco's durability probably means that we won't see him except in garbage time during the regular season.

  Ravens | Caleb Hanie signs    Tue Apr 16, 12:09 PM

The Baltimore Ravens signed free-agent QB Caleb Hanie (Broncos) to a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum.

Footballguys view: Hanie has a few starts under his belt but was only signed for veteran depth. He'll be a camp arm for the team as their QB3 behind Joe Flacco and Tyrod Taylor.

  Ravens | Likely to add Caleb Hanie    Mon Apr 15, 07:17 PM

The Baltimore Ravens are likely to add free agent QB Caleb Hanie (Broncos), although no deal is done yet.

Footballguys view: Hanie has starting experience but would only give the team veteran depth behind Joe Flacco and Tyrod Taylor. He's a camp arm who may not be a lock to make the team if signed.

  Broncos | Release Caleb Hanie    Mon Mar 11, 05:28 PM

The Denver Broncos released QB Caleb Hanie Monday, Mar. 11.

Footballguys view: Hanie was signed to backup Peyton Manning but didn't win the QB2 job. Brock Osweiler will once again be the primary backup behind Manning.

  Broncos | Will re-sign Caleb Hanie     Mon Sep 10, 05:07 PM

Denver Broncos head coach John Fox said the team will re-sign free-agent QB Caleb Hanie.

Footballguys view: Cutting him last week was a money saving move. Now his salary this year is not guaranteed. It's unclear if Hanie or rookie Brock Osweiler is the backup behind Peyton Manning.

  Broncos | Caleb Hanie released    Sat Sep 8, 02:24 PM

The Denver Broncos have released QB Caleb Hanie. There is a good chance the team looks to re-sign him Monday, Sept. 10, when his salary could not be guaranteed.

Footballguys view: Hanie did not play well in the preseason and it's surprising he made the 53-man roster in the first place. We think the Broncos would be better off just rolling with Brock Osweiler as their QB2 all season long.

  Broncos | Caleb Hanie No. 2 QB on depth chart     Thu Aug 9, 11:28 AM

Denver Broncos QB Caleb Hanie is currently listed as the team's No. 2 quarterback ahead of QB Brock Osweiler.

Footballguys view: He's ahead on the depth chart now, but is certainly on the roster bubble and has not been impressive in camp. We think Osweiler could end up winning the primary backup job behind Peyton Manning this year.

  Broncos | Caleb Hanie agrees to two-year deal    Sat Mar 24, 09:36 PM

Updating a previous report, the Denver Broncos and free-agent QB Caleb Hanie (Bears) agreed to a two-year deal Saturday, March 24, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Footballguys view: Hanie played his college ball just down I-25 from Denver in Ft. Collins at Colorado State. He played poorly for the Bears last year, going 0-4 as a replacement starter for an injured Jay Cutler. He'll give them a veteran backup behind Peyton Manning. We still expect Denver to select a QB in the mid-rounds of the 2012 NFL Draft.

  Bears | Caleb Hanie will not return    Wed Mar 7, 12:37 PM

The Chicago Bears have informed impending free-agent QB Caleb Hanie that they will not be re-signing him this offseason.

  Bears | To look at QBs for backup role    Fri Feb 24, 01:59 AM

Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith indicated the team will pursue a backup quarterback during the offseason. QB Nathan Enderle is the only other quarterback under contract besides starter QB Jay Cutler. 'We have a lot of options out there. I think this is an attractive place for a quarterback,' Smith said. 'We're going to look at all people. And I'm talking about (QB Caleb Hanie), (QB Josh McCown) and free agent quarterbacks out there. I just feel like we'll be able to strengthen that position more than we were this past year.'

Footballguys view: Enderle is a raw QB who is nowhere near seeing the field. The Bears could look at a free agent QB like Kyle Orton to upgrade their backup position.

Chicago Bears QB Josh McCown will be given the opportunity to win the starting job for the team's Week 16 game against the Green Bay Packers, according to multiple sources.

Footballguys view: McCown may win the job over Caleb Hanie if he can impress the coaching staff in practice. Hanie has played terribly over the last four games and has nine interceptions during that time.

  Bears | Mum on QB plans     Mon Dec 19, 09:17 AM

Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith wasn't prepared to disclose plans to make a change at quarterback following Week 15. 'Open?' Smith asked about the quarterback position. 'I mean, it's right after the game and we're disappointed in our performance today in the quarterback position. But I can't tell you any more than that.' QBs Caleb Hanie and Josh McCown combined to throw four interceptions - two returned for touchdowns - in Week 15.

Chicago Bears QB Caleb Hanie went 10-for-23 for 111 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in Week 15 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Footballguys view: Hanie proves to matchup heaven for a D/ST in fantasy leagues yet again by throwing two pick sixes and otherwise keeping his offense from being competent.
